Article Summary:

They are currently tied for the 5 seed in the East with the Indiana Pacers, but they are relegated to the 6 seed due to Indiana winning two of the three matchups the team played before the league suspension. Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in own conference 6. Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in opposite conference 7. Higher point differential between points scored and points allowed

Obviously, there is no more home-court advantage so earning a higher seed does not exactly matter in the grand scheme of things, but a matchup with Miami may be a bit more favorable than Boston despite losing the season series to the Heat.

Another thing to think about is the Round 2 matchup.
